Audioengine A1-MR Multiroom Home Music System with Wi-Fi

Editor’s brief: For some, the DSP (digital signal processing) is a godsend for audio. However, for some others, audio equipment without any DSP might just be the way to a rich and natural soundscape. The affordable Audioengine A1-MR makes a great audio system for multi-room setups over WIFI. Read more below.

SINGAPORE – The A1-MR Multiroom Home Music System with Wi-Fi has finally arrived from Texas-based speaker manufacturer Audioengine. The new speakers are a compact set that are the ideal audio upgrade for the home, as they allow for streaming music of superior quality. When connected via Wi-Fi, the A1-MR speakers deliver authentic stereo sound.

Hi-Fi your Wi-Fi

The innovative new A1-MR breaks new ground for portable music players. The two speakers are a great investment because they enhance the sound quality of your existing home audio equipment and make high-quality, wireless music streaming possible in any room.

The A1-MR, in tandem with the Audioengine companion app and your Wi-Fi network, gives you a fresh perspective on finding and interacting with the music you love. Most notably, true stereo sound can be streamed from any Wi-Fi device using any streaming app, allowing users to enjoy a truly immersive listening experience regardless of where they are. It’s the gap between enjoying music and truly appreciating it.

Maximum sound, minimal space

The A1-MR’s compact design, while purpose-built for versatility, does little to prepare listeners for such a large soundstage and precise imaging. The A1-MR’s sleek, minimalist design ensures that the only thing that will take up space in your home is your next playlist, rather than the stereo itself.

Simple setup, total control

Speakers in the A1-MR series place an emphasis on ease of use. Connect your iPhone, iPad, or Android device to your home WiFi network and use the free Audioengine Control app to control your audio system. After that, you can browse your music library, stream music from Spotify Connect Premium or any other streaming service via Airplay, or use the app’s built-in music players to play music in high quality right away. Plus, your iOS or Android device supports in-app music streaming from a wide variety of services, such as Amazon Music, Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Napster, and many more.

Expand your listening

When connected to your Wi-Fi network, the Audioengine Control app can support up to 12 zones for flawless, whole-home audio synchronization. Install more A1-MR Speakers in different rooms to take advantage of multiroom audio, stereo pairing, and multiple user support.

You can use the app to control the music playing throughout your home, whether you want to play a different song in each room or the same song throughout the house. And they did it without skipping a beat.
